101 Charges?!?

Dial 101 to call for police assistance and get charged 15p a time for the privilege. The police want to encourage the public to avoid using 999 unless it's a real emergency, however this pricing policy will dissuade the public from doing so. Not right, is it???

Re: 101 Charges?!?

Hi bigvic1971

Welcome to the community Smiley Happy

I'm sorry to hear you weren't aware of the cost of calling 101.

This price is set by the Government and not something mobile and fixed line providers like us set themselves.

There's more information about this on the Police website.

Please let us know if we can offer further assistance.

Many thanks
